Bosphorus Film Festival Hosted “Between Two Dawns” Film Crew

Selected for the 9th Bosphorus Film Festival’s National Feature Competition, Between Two Dawns met with audiences in Istanbul. The screening of Selman Nacar’s film took place on the evening of Tuesday, October 26 at Atlas 1948 Cinema. After the screening, a Q&A session was held with director Selman Nacar, producers Burak Çevik and Diloy Gülün, casts Mücahit Koçak, Nezaket Erden, Bedir Bedir, Erdem Şenocak, Gülçin Kültür Şahin and crew members. The event was moderated by academician and film critic Murat Tırpan.

Taking place in the National Feature Film Competition “Between Two Dawns” is about Kadir, who has to make a moral decision, after a worker gets brutally hurt at their family business, regarding his dreams, his family and the wife of the wounded worker and the events that follow.

Selman Nacar started his words with the question on the creation of the project. The director said he was working on another script but as he took notes on a charcter, he switched to this project. Being a graduate in law, Nacar stated that he had interest in concepts like morality, conscience and law, and added that working on them also had a cinematographic effect. Nacar said, “I wanted to make a film in which the character was in several locations and in relation which many people and Between Two Dawns came out.”

One of the producers Burak Çevik answered the question on the production process and said they shot the film in Uşak. Çevik pointed out that 1955 was the last time a film was shot in Uşak, and this choice was effective because the director Selman Nacar was from Uşak. Çevik said the scenes were shot in a real factory, and the production process took a long time due to the pandemic. He added that they were very happy to be able to watch the film on the silver screen.

When a comment was made about the cold atmosphere in the film created by the factory, director Nacar stated that “The colors range was selected, long takes without any cuts were shot and we aimed to make audiences feel the time-scale and look through a realistic perspective. The factory was filmed in one shot and the noises and continuity were not damaged. We were able to witness everything in the factory with Kadir and question ourselves.”
